Bibi & Bichu, Jugglers
Posted on 19 December 2016
Originally from Ethiopia, brothers and world famous jugglers have performed in thousands of shows in dozens of countries, including the Millennium Dome celebrations in London, the Fuji Rock festival in Japan and the English National Opera production of Akhnetan. Interspersing live shows with numerous TV appearances, they have appeared on the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, on shows including 'The Paul O'Grady Show', and 'Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway'. They are perhaps best known as the resident jugglers in Gifford’s Circus, a magical English Circus which tours Gloucstershire and the west country every Summer. This year they will be launching their own show, Circus Abyssinia.
